Gotta be better than cheese covered deep fried salt pork served with a cold pig foot po-boy and vinegar eggs.

Press Button, Receive Chocolate-Covered Bacon.

My coronary arteries just shivered in anticipation and dread.

/would try it once.
2006-10-24 08:54:30 AM  
I want to say this is disgusting, but I know damn well that if I was PMS I would try it.
2006-10-24 08:55:46 AM  
I'd try it. Eastern European food that doesn't involve boiled starches intrigues me.

2006-10-24 09:31:20 AM  
yes, thank you.
2006-10-24 09:38:22 AM  
I'd actually prefer to skip these tastey appetizers and move on directly to my heart attack.

I'd only eat it if peanut butter were provided for dipping.
2006-10-24 09:39:47 AM  
Bacon tastes pretty good and not much more than salted pork fat.

The BBC has an article with an actual pic.

Ever notice how these guys eat the nastiest shiat and still manage to stay slim and live to 80+?
2006-10-24 09:42:42 AM  
I prefer my pork fat with jimmies. Thanks but no.
2006-10-24 09:46:27 AM  
Notice the Fighting Fat after Menopause ad in the article?

//must be a sign

Chocolate-covered Salo or Chocolate covered 120 Days in Sodom?

Hmmmm. Decisions, decisions, it's so difficult ordering at Passolini's. I think I'll just stick with the special, the Abject Human Despair, medium rare.
2006-10-24 09:51:10 AM  
That picture turned me on.
2006-10-24 09:56:21 AM  
Damn, I thought this was actually happening in Detroit.
2006-10-24 09:57:20 AM  
Um, didn't we already have a thread about this last night? Here's the pic:

2006-10-24 09:59:54 AM  
This is a really interesting article. But I don't think the last sentence should have a period before the word but.

Chicken pot pie!...Chocolate-covered pork fat!?!?...Ehh...Glazed ham!
2006-10-24 10:02:18 AM  
Pizza!? Now THAT's what I call a taco!

/Taco Town!
2006-10-24 10:02:41 AM  

There's a million-year-old genetic trigger that tells me NOT to eat that...

RE: the BBC article
screw the pork fat, someone find me an article about a chocolate covered ruslano! wowie, wow wow.

2006-10-24 10:06:47 AM  
woodpecker from mars; Yeah, I might consider eating this stuff the next time I get PMS too.

/ Yes, I am a guy, how did you guess?

Sounds like some good eating, though I'd prefer it without the chocolate.
Having said that, eating 2 pounds of it in 20 minutes is pretty farking ridiculous.

Salo is often eaten with a shot of vodka and garlic bread.

2006-10-24 10:24:19 AM  
There's a place in Washington DC called MiniBar that serves a 32(ish) course meal that includes maple syrup covered pork rinds.

If these are anything like that then sign me up!!!
2006-10-24 10:24:20 AM  
You know...sometimes I wonder how I manage to stay thin just living an average lifestyle, with an average amount of excercise. And then I see something like this and realize, there's just so many ways I COULD be getting fat.

Thank the gods for common sense.
2006-10-24 10:27:19 AM  
move over eggs, bacon's got a new best friend... fudge!

not sure why this didn't show up the first time.

When I was a kid, every Christmas, my grandmother would bring white boudin, head cheese (hot and mild) and cracklins, which we'd have for breakfast Christmas morning after we came back from Mass. Once we had red boudin with it, too, but that's hard to find.

I never knew how disgusting everyone else thought it was until I moved out of state.

Boudin & head cheese, I still eat when I can get it. Cracklins are just too greasy to eat more than one, which sucks, because those are the easiest to make.
2006-10-24 10:37:09 AM  
Chocolate up that porkfat! bacon up that chocolate, boy!

But dad, my heart hurts!
2006-10-24 10:38:14 AM  
They should fry it for good measure.
2006-10-24 10:40:40 AM  
Meh. I grew up on deep fried salted pork fat. A few strips of that, some biscuits, and either cane syrup, sorghum syrup or molasses. Leave off the chocolate, and I'm there!

Deep-Fried Candied Pork Fat - New Orleans Recipe

[ed note: AKA Heart Attack on a Plate]

3-4 Lbs Pork Fat Skin On (unsalted) cut into 1-inch cubes
Juice of 1 Lime
4 Cups Condensed Milk*
1/8-1/4 Tsp Ground Cloves
4 Tbsp Coconut Milk
2 Tbsp. Sweet Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Soft Butter
1 Cup Flour
1 Tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp. Slap yo Momma Cajun Seasoning (dry salty hot powder)
1 Tsp. Asses of Fire or Tabasco Sauce (sweet hot sauce wet)
1/2 Tsp. Vanilla
4 Cups new Lard for frying (make sure it's new)
2 Cup Confectioners Sugar (not regular)
3 Tbsp Shredded Coconut (optional)
1 Tsp Ground Cardamom - available at most Asian food stores
Fresh Mint leaves for garnish
1 Pinch Cayenne Pepper

* a 2:1:1 mixture of 2% milk, regular sugar and corn starch can also be

Wash and place Pork Fat in a wide bowl, squeeze juice of 1 lime over
pork fat and mix well. This will clean and tenderize the fat and remove
any residual 'off' taste. Leave for at least 15 minutes, preferably
longer, and then wash and drain thoroughly (you need to remove all
traces of the lime juice before proceeding to the next step or the milk
will curdle).

Mix 2 cups condensed milk, ground cloves and coconut milk, pour over
pork fat and marinate in the fridge overnight or for at least 8 hours.


Heat 4 cups vegetable oil in a deep fryer to about 350-375 degrees.
Prepare batter by mixing together remaining 2 cups condensed milk, rice
wine vinegar, wet sweet hot sauce and soft butter.

In another bowl, blend flour, baking powder and dry salty Cajun

In a COLD bowl, whisk wet ingredients into dry and continue mixing
until smooth. Keep batter on ice.

Remove Pork Fat from marinade but do not dry, quickly (very quickly)
dust with flour and dip into the batter.

Rotate pork fat until batter covers entire cube.

Very, very, very, carefully place the battered pork fat in hot oil.

Pork fat will float, and air pockets may pop so it's a good idea to
use a splatter screen if you have one.

Fat cubes should turn golden in 4 to 5 minutes.

Rotate and turn to make sure that the entire fat cube has been browned
(be careful to neither overcook nor undercook!).

Remove fried sweet-battered pork fat to paper towel and let drain
(drain well).

In a wide rolling tray, blend confectioners sugar, shredded coconut and
ground cardamom.

While battered pork fat is still warm roll in confectioners sugar,
shredded coconut and ground cardamom mix to coat generously.

Place on a bed of mint leaves, or garnish with mint leaves (mint leaves
may also be eaten). Sprinkle mint leaves with a light coating of
confectioners sugar and cayenne pepper.

Suggested accompaniment: Hurricane (full or half), Mint Julep
(bourbon), Corona, Casa del Sol, Carribe, Don Equis etc. Wine - none,
Wine Cooler - none

I am, of course, deeply disappointed that it doesn't come with a buttery dipping sauce as well.

2006-10-24 11:42:16 AM  
I prefer my pork fat covered in chocolate, dipped in batter, and deep fried.
2006-10-24 11:50:05 AM  
bacon tastes good...pork chops taste good. bring on the salo. and definitely more than one shot of vodka.
2006-10-24 12:22:22 PM  
The Salo King? Any relation to Abe Froman?
2006-10-24 12:25:47 PM  
Will the salo king be having a thin wafer mint afterward?
2006-10-24 12:33:22 PM  
Damn, brap beat me to it :(
